Top Tax Tips and Concerns for Manufacturers

Apr 30, 2021

If you sell products or services that are exempt from sales tax, your compliance challenges and audit risk can be complex and burdensome. For each non-taxable sale, you must associate a tax exemption certificate (or more than one, in some cases) proving tax was not owed. But gathering and managing these documents while understanding your obligations quickly becomes overwhelming.

The pandemic affected manufacturers especially hard with disruptions in the global supply chain and shipping delays, to name a couple. Many manufacturers turned to online sales, selling direct to consumers, and even creating new products to survive in the new normal. All of these actions have sales tax implications that can drastically change the way manufacturers manage compliance for years to come.
